There are a few substitutes I can think of:
信任是要靠努力得来的 (trust is obtained through hard work)
信任是要争取的 (trust must be fought for)
信任是要赢得的 (trust must be won)
信任是要经营的 (trust needs to be maintained)
信任是要用时间去积累的 (trust is acquired over a period of time)
If you are looking for a word, I think 争取[zhēngqǔ] is a good replacement for 赚 because it means to put in ...

恋人 perfectly fits your need, its gender and age neutral, and can be used in formal settings.
情人 somehow fits your need, but is not as good, because it could also mean an extramarital lover, which may cause misunderstanding.
爱人 is also gender neutral, but usually refers to partner in marriage.
'Obscene' is not 下流(no class/ bad taste) or 輕佻 (frivolous)
One definition of obscene is 不堪入目 , it is used to describe perverted, immoral act or behavior
For example: Taking a child from his mother and claim it is all for enforcing the law (which is not true) is an obscene (不堪入耳- too perverted and immoral to the ears) argument
Another definition of ...

You can use '表舅', because he is your mother's '表哥'.
Basically I think there are three prefixes that you can add to relationship words: '亲' (directly/closely related, which is usually omitted), '堂', '表'. All your ancestors, siblings (that share at least father or mother with you), and descendant are '亲'. '堂' only refers to your father's brothers' children. ...
五羊(five sheeps) is the brand name.
Guangzhou hat factory
Reasonably, the whole thing in English might become something like (stuff that you can leave out for a nicer translation is between square brackets):
A product of Guangzhou Hat Factory [in Guangzhou]

(7) 更加 [even more]。
(9) 不但(不仅,不光)…还… [not only ...... but also]。

Similar words of 还能:

These from the above are a little commanding in tone, especially the second and third. You may change the tone by switching to a request rather than a command.

Yes, people use ‘kuài’ in conversation, as in ‘yī qiān duō kuài’ (over 1,000 NT$). You can also add ‘qián’ to make it clear you’re talking about amounts of money: ‘wŭ shí kuài qián’ (50 NT$).
You might want to use ‘(xīn) tái bì’ when changing money, as in ‘qĭng gĕi wŏ tái bì’ (please give me Taiwan dollars). I don’t know what was used in previous periods,...
As many have said the "proper" way to refer to the currency of Taiwan is 新台币 (Xīn tái bì) which is literally broken down to 新 (Xīn) = New and 台币 (tái bì) = Taiwan Dollars
Old Taiwan dollars are referred to as 舊臺幣* (旧台币) (jiù tái bì)
However you would only refer to them by these proper names when dealing with multiple currencies. When referring to ...
I can't recall any Chinese expressions used in the same way as calling out with 'Surprise!' in English. I guess the reason might be that Chinese Culture doesn't make Chinese people as playful as English Culture making its people.
We say something different from 'surprise!' in similar cases:
I bring a gift to a friend, before showing him/her the gift, I say:...
We don't use 補 or 縫補 in Taiwan. We use 修改衣服 instead.
When you like to get the clothes mended, you should find the 修改衣服/換拉鏈 (Modify clothes/Change zippers) signs as follows.
We still call the person who does these works 老闆.
Zeptoseconds = 仄普托秒 / 仄秒 / (Taiwan Guoyu: 介秒)
Yoctoseconds = 幺科托秒 / 幺秒 / (Taiwan Guoyu: 攸秒)
幺（幺科托） = yocto-
The shortened forms, i.e.: 仄秒 & 幺秒 are probably more accessible than their long forms.
You can check out this Metric SI Prefixes Table in Chinese for even more details. Heres a quick and dirty current screen grab for reference:
In my experience, usually we say:
(My computer crashed.)
(My computer is broken.)
(My computer can't be used anymore.)

I will explain this in another view point :-) And I think it's better to put my conclusion first:
恋爱的预感 or just 恋之预感 is a perfect translation in Chinese.
Now, let's consider this interesting question:
Why is it said to be untranslatable in English?
Koi No Yokan (Japanese): Koi No Yokan is a truly beautiful concept. It can defined the sense can have ...
In gaming field, (of) long range is commonly translated into 远程 or 远距离, and ranged attacked is 远程攻击. You can use 射程 when you want to express the notion of range.
By the way, 主力 is not the right word for strength. If you use 主力 here, it means primary (attack method). To say strength you may want to use 强项 or 优势.
So I would translate this way:

While it may be better to refer to Shantou as Chaozhou (潮州), I think CA55CE37 is onto something here. Indeed, in chaozhouhua 大橘/桔 (orange) and 大吉 (great luck) are apparently near homophones. A Thai source I have mentions this as well and ...

A longer version is "雷得外焦里嫩" (Lei2 De Wai4 Jiao1 Li3 Nen4), which means someone got attached ...
